A young woman runs away to live the disreputable lifestyle of a carnival barker, making time for a "hectic interlude on the Isle of Lesbos," with "Marla, who was a blonde on the DEBBIE REYNOLDS Type." Early sleaze with impassioned publisher's jacket summary. Chapter titles include: THE FERRIS WHEEL, THE WHIP, THE CYCLONE, THE MERRY-GO-ROUND, and finally THE TUNNEL OF LOVE. By Orrie Hitt, writing as Charles Verne; dedicated to fellow pulp author Carlson Wade.
